SHEN works: Hands-on Help for Emotions, Pain and Trauma

SHEN Therapy uses Qi to relax tension, relieve pain and holistically forward a Hero's journey to recovery and re-empowerment.


Recently, I noticed a trend: numerous articles online and in popular magazines are being published about the effects of emotions.  I decided to start a collection of the more interesting ones.

If you know of a good article that you think ought to be included, please email me the details.

Thanking you in advance, Ayleyaell

The Brain Reacts to Heartbreak Same As Physical Pain, Medical News Today, Mar 28, 2011  


The Heart of the MatterThe Best Brain, April 3, 2010. The heart’s ability to perceive meaning from the world is called aisthesis which literally means “to breath in.” Science is proving more and more that our experience of the world is first perceived by our heart.

Hugh's heart surgery was successful. As with all clients I've given pre-op SHEN to, the surgeon reported that the patient bled very little, vitals were all good, and recovery was accelerated to the point where the estimated 4-5 days in the hospital post-op have been cut in half to 2 -3 days.

I will stay in Malibu while Hugh is recovering and I am available to give SHEN sessions and SHEN intensives, while I'm here; Hugh has a dedicated healing room I can use.  I will be joined on November 20 by my Mom Betty, the founder of Body Enlightenment healing, who will also offer private sessions. There is the rare opportunity to have the 2 of us work with you at the same time - the much acclaimed 'gourmet' session!
